Something Old, something New.

"Lace" and "Vintage" seem to be still here for 2012, but the new thing is the idea of colour. Vera Wang has followed the trend of being influenced with a hint of colour in her bridal range. It is easier to do if you are having no bridesmaids, then you don't have the problem of what colour to add for the bridesmaids. My own personal preference is that the bride should always be in the lightest colour. The bride that dares to be different, the idea of a colour however isn't different, has got a good chance that she will wear her dress again and again. Colour is evident in the collections of wedding dresses in the Ulster Museum and the Folk Museum as it was a more common practise at the beginning of the last century. To be honest colour is easier to wear than ivory or white.
Say it with lace
Something different with lace, note the sleeves.

Still some sale items on offer this week.

Thanks to everyone who supported me at my Open weekend. I have some things still on special offer if it is of interest to any of you.
classic strapless dress for £750

If you are the same size as this dummy then you ae in luck as I did this dress after seeing the dress that Kate wore for the night time of her wedding day. Mine has a train floating from a cirular skirt in the dress. I added the idea of the belt to show off a tiny waist. This dress is on offer off the peg to the first person that loves it.
It is ivory zibeline with silver and crystal beads as the decoration.

Happy New Year

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say Happy New Year to you all, both old and new brides ( I was going to say) but I better change that to all my customers old and new. Last year I had a great time working for Bride and Groom's Mum's, so I want to wish you all the best for this incoming year. I also was lucky enough to make christening gown's and Holy communion dresses for some of my younger cliental. Sometime it is my younger clients that manage to follow my blog with all their expertise in the world of technology so I wanted to say Hi to you and thanks. Then there is the brave groom's who come to our shop to get the Men'swear. It is great when I can help the whole wedding party but sometimes the  brides have found a dress  elsewhere.  We enjoy making everyone look their best and hopefully you all think we  do that in the best way possible.

We love to hear your news and I am excited for all my brides both old and new. This year 2012 I have quite a few of you expecting a new arrival. Please keep in touch when you have good news for me. I think the first bundle of joy is due to arrive March so I can't wait. Keep in touch everyone. I want you to make it you New Year's Resolution to add a comment to my blog pages . It is best if I hear what you think so that I am always improving.
Happy New Year to All!!
